One plus one equals two, right? Well, not in the LinkedIn world.
For the most part, LinkedIn members have been using the site to pursue their individual goals and objectives.
It’s now time for the company to gather up the troops and bring all these individuals together—with their connections and their voices—and put forth a consistent company message. There is immense exponential value when the employees and company work together.
To help business leaders corral this potential value, I have written an eBook titled: 10 LinkedIn Mistakes Companies Make—and How to Fix Them Before They Damage
Your Company's Reputation.
In this 15-page eBook, I address common mistakes, provide solutions, and give tips for using LinkedIn to grow revenues,
find new employees and suppliers, and maintain a consistent brand in the ever-changing online world.
